If you want to succeed (in having a good day), you better watch your speed (on your way to work).

Heed Your Speed

You woke up late. Everything is going wrong. You already have been warned by your supervisor, putting you on notice, about your lateness to work. In your lack of considering the consequences, as your driving down the highway, you "floor the pedal." And yes, your day becomes history. Those flashing lights, that loud speaker, and an officer of the law comes out of his patrol car to personally greet you.

Just think what effect a calibrated speed gun can have on one day of your life, not to mention the aggravation, cost, time, anxiety and points on your license. Speeding just does not pay. So you'll get to where you've got to go five minutes later-Not the end of the world!

Very Short Haiku Poetry - Poetry with an image worth a thousand words

Haiku Poetry is a very short poem with poetic images that can transcend the limitation imposed by the usual language and thinking. What if we took that imagery into the realm of human nature or normal everyday situations that we all encounter in our lives at one time or another. While attempting to do this I tried to stay within the bounds of contemplative poetry that indicates a moment, sensation, impression or drama of a specific moment in nature or common occurrence. However, I broadened this framework to at times include moral, historical, scientific, legal, social, etc., issues as well. I believe, by doing this, we are introduced to a unique and creative imagery that paints a mental picture where you the reader can find much deeper meanings to personally relate.
